Return Value

Type: System.Guid
The Guid value stored in the PipelineBuffer column.


This method works with the DT_GUID data type in Integration Services.

If the value of the column is null, the PipelineBuffer produces a ColumnIsNullException. You should first check for null by calling the IsNull method before retrieving the Guid from the buffer column.

For a complete list of Integration Services data types and the corresponding Get and Set methods of the PipelineBuffer class to use with each type, see Working with Data Types in the Data Flow.
